Rare white lion cub born at Colombian circusA rare white lion cub born at a circus in Colombia is thought to be one of only 300 left in the world.

The newborn cat named Milagros, the Spanish word for 'miracles' came as a surprise for the circus troupe based in the Colombian city of Monteria.
"The plan is to raise it so that it can grow up and then we'll see if we can work with it," a member of the circus said.
Though Milagros' parents both have yellow fur the cub was born snow white.
White lions, believed to be native to the Timbavati region of South Africa are not albino but get their colouring from a recessive gene.
Milagros is in good health and receiving special care.
